Climate Change Impacts on Hydrological Extremes and Water Resources in Lake Victoria Catchments, Upper Nile Basin (Invloed van de klimaatverandering op de hydrologische extremen en watervoorraden in stroomgebieden opwaarts van het Victoriameer in het Nijlbekken)Berlamont, Jean; U0006958; Willems, Patrick; U0009249; Ngirane-Katashaya, Gaddi; Nyeko, Paul Ogira; U0044946 (2011-12-09)This research was fundeded by the Flemish Interuniversity Council – University Development Cooperation (VLIR-OUS) under the ICP-PhD programme, administered at KULeuven, Belgium and Makerere University Kampala, Uganda. The research was conducted at the hydraulic laboratory of KULeuven, Belgium and the Hydrology and Water resources division of the Civil Engineering Department, Makerere University Kampala, Uganda. This research was linked to the FRIEND/Nile research activities being condcuted by the River Nile basin riparian country. The author has been a team member.

Distance Education and Community Learning Networks linked by a Library of CultureSantiago, Joseph A (DigitalCommons@URI, 2011-02-14)Humans are relational beings with their modeled behavior as practical examples of cultural routines that they hear, see, read, and assemble on their own from communal pieces of information to answer the needs of their everyday lives (Bandura, & Jeffrey, 1973). Yet few researchers have looked at the differing synthesis of culture and generally assume that others share similar ideas/values that lead to particular events and worldviews (Lillard, p.5 1998). Informational and cultural contact zones can be created to support CLNs, universities, and individuals in a variety of roles to encourage their interactions so they might design, and challenge the fundamentals of these programs and seek to better cooperation amongst the public itself (Tremmel, 2000). By increasing communication and collaboration of educational systems throughout the community will begin to raise the standard of living for all people (Bohn, & Schmidt, 2008). This will begin to draw people out from the digital divide and increase the access of technology and information available to all people with the community. Utilizing CLNs to support and further education will allow an interconnected web of assessments, standards, and cooperative efforts that has the potential of increasing democracy by empowering people from their communities.
